What are the benefits of pediatric urgent care for your child?
With pediatric care, your child can get healthcare that’s specialized for children. It’s a good idea to have this kind of specialized care because children have special health needs compared to adults and seniors. For example, children have special developmental needs since they’re growing and changing rapidly. Pediatric care provides for such needs.
With urgent care, your child can get healthcare that’s available for walk-in appointments. This can be really convenient and sometimes even necessary, like when your child has a cut that needs stitches, or strep throat that needs treatment. If your child needs a sports or school physical exam right away, or if your child is behind in their immunization schedule, you can go to urgent care in these cases too. Keep in mind that urgent care is for non-life-threatening health matters only.
Pediatric urgent care is specialized urgent care for kids. It has all of the benefits of pediatric care and urgent care combined, so it’s perfect for kids who need any kind of common healthcare right away.
How is pediatric urgent care different from an emergency room or other urgent care centers?
Most urgent care centers provide urgent care for people of any age, including children. However, these clinics may not provide pediatric care that’s specialized for children. This means the clinics might not provide care around the growth, development, and behavior of children, so in some cases, the clinics may not be as capable of helping a child.
The emergency room (ER) may be able to provide pediatric care and can provide many urgent care services, but the ER is for life-threatening health matters, and it isn’t the best place to go for urgent care and pediatric care. If you go to the ER for urgent care or pediatric care, you’ll have to wait until patients with life-threatening health matters are treated.
At a pediatric urgent care clinic, your child can get immediate care for common health matters. It’s the best place to go for any minor but urgent health matters too. Please keep in mind that urgent care clinics cannot provide care for life-threatening health matters.
